The ThanksGiving Back (TGB) program is under the larger Alternative Breaks@Stanford (AB@S) service program. It involves a series of 3 workshops in the Fall Quarter that culminates in a Thanksgiving Break trip. The workshops expose students to complex social and cultural issues through group discussion, readings and reflection activities, while the trip is characterized by community visits, experiential learning, and direct service. The program's vision is to transform students into advocates of social change on issues affecting our local, national and global communities.
The program is entirely student-run, and each TGB course and trip will feature 2 co-leaders who chose a specific topic to focus on. Through the application process, a maximum 12 participants will be chosen to partake in the 3 workshops and ensuing Thanksgiving trip from Sunday morning to Wednesday evening of Thanksgiving break. The 2019-2020 school year features 3 TGB trips.The trip and course descriptions, as well as the co-leader biographies are detailed below.
